Gender: F Meaning of Ellington: "Ellis' town" Origin of Ellington: English place-name and surname

Ellington's popularity may be inspired by jazz great Duke, but the name is used slightly more often for girls today, perhaps because of its trendy El- beginning. Like a host of other El- names, from the familiar Ella to Eleanor to the exotic Elodie and Elula, Ellington carries the popular Ellie nickname.
